On January 25, 2021, Alicia Keys, the voice behind “Girl on Fire” and “Empire State of Mind” turned 40, and the celebrations were every bit as hot as she is courtesies her husband, music producer, and rapper Swizz Beatz.
And uncharacteristically for her, Keys let her fans into some of her more private pictures and videos from the celebrations and looked every bit the diva as she danced and frolicked to her own tune.
As one fan wrote, wish you a very happy birthday “young legend”.
Killing It Queen-Like
Alicia Keys can dish out the best of looks when she wants to and her in a bikini top with harem-pants like bottoms give her an undeniable, exotic appeal.
Fans were “So happy you were born” while others wanted her to “enjoy the light coming your way”.
Clearly, Keys had a fantastic 40th and was into all that was happening, including the killer party her husband threw for her.
Meanwhile, do check out the giant bouquet that Oprah sent her, that Zoe Kravitz found to be “subtle”!
